president obama had a bad night. he's had a great four years considering and that's where my focus goes from here, but i'm not going to be in denial that the president needs to pivot on this and needs to get aggressive on the record, not so much to be negative against things that romney has said. we all know that. state what you've established. where was the automobile loan and the saving of billions of jobs? where was the private sector job growth? why wouldn't he mention not outsourcing and creating jobs in america in almost to the point where the president's team failed him. >> performance, the campaign surrogates that were out ahead of time were saying that mitt romney is a great gatdebatgator debator. >> that is political russian roulette. we have a narrow window of opportunity to make sure that the vote gets out. what the president did last night was energize the suppress the vote people trying to intimidate obama supporters. on the other hand you have the left now looking for direction saying, okay, mr. president, do you really believe in what you're saying because there were moment l
voted for president obama last year may have said it best. >> i felt like governor romney stepped up his game in terms of bringing something new to this campaign. >> reporter: we had a diverse group, a few new to politics, some swing voters, age 57 to 17. all relieved to hear directly from the two candidates instead of all the negative ads bombarding the state. how many of you saw something in governor romney you had not seen before? >> ultimately i think he was very compassionate and he seemed like his policies were actually sensible. >> if you notice, there's a four-step plan. this is one, two, three, four. he's very clear in talking to us. >> reporter: despite all of that, for some president obama still won the night because he came across as the person they could relate to. >> i feel like i want a president i can connect with. he looked to the camera and addressed us. and mitt romney did not do that. >> i like how obama talked about the middle class. i personally don't know any millionaires and there's a lot more of us in the middle class. >> reporter: the two latina women said they
to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key thing to remind people there is a governing of the republican party that already exists. it's like nailing gel oto the wall. no. you are tied to an actual institutional govern body which actually has a record, which actually is going to propose and vote for things that you actually put on your ticket. they are you
capitalizes on it with what he did last night. what is different than four years ago when barack obama took the stage in mississippi he came out with grand ideas about all of us coming together and how we are going to cut the deficit in half and the world will like us again, and how we are going to get out of iraq and afghanistan. guess what, now he's going to run on what he's done over the last four years and there is not a lot he can point to to say that they were successful. that's what got him in trouble last night. if mitt romney does this the next couple of debates and he continues to go out there in the way he did last night and saying, this is how you failed, this is where you failed, this is where it's not adding up, i'm not sure barack obama can really come back with actual facts or figures, because he doesn't have those as time to run on. megyn: simon did you share chris matthews' frustration at the president's performance? >> i may have not been as animated as he was last night. the president didn't have a good night. mitt romney had a good night. megyn: what happened to barack
8-year-old daughter who came in and asked, why is president obama so mad? >> there you go. >> walked by the screen. >> i think that's a really, you know, good way of putting it. it looked as though he was either at the wrong debate, he was in parallel play. and it also looked to me as though he has the classic presidential case of no one has spoken to him that way in four years. and i think that's -- >> say that again. stop and say that again because chris matthews said it last night, that maybe he's heard "hail to the chief" one too many times. say that again. >> no one has spoken to him that way -- no one has tried to interrupt him in four years. and i think it showed. >> you're surrounded as president by yes-men and totis. that's what happens. everyone agrees with you. >> that's a little harsh. >> but it's just -- >> i don't think that's the case. >> everyone wants to agree with the president. no one ever says to the president, you know, it's hard to say to the president you're wrong, sir, no one gets in your face, no one interrupts you, no one tries to tell the ref to control the
at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fihting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> i have my own plans, not the same as simpson-bowles but in my view the president should have grabbed it if he wanted to make adjustments take it, go to congress and fight it. >> that's what we have done, make adjustments and putting it before congress right now, $4 trillion plan. >> you have been president four years, you have been president four years, you said you would cut the deficit in half, we still have trillion dollars deficits, a we will be have a trillion-dollar deficit each of the four years if you are reelected we will get to a $20 trillion debt. >> rose: it will be seen if romney can keep up the momentum. we begin this evening with analysis of chris matthews of msnbc, welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: as you watched the debate last night, what was your reaction to what you were seeing, b, why do you think it was that way, and, c, where are we going from here? >> well, i think governor romney knew it would be a wide open format a
.s. presidential race. quote, in the point of view of his politics, if i were voting, i would vote for obama, and i believe that if obama was from caracas, he would vote for chavez. i am positive. relations between the u.s. and venezuela have been tense in recent years. neither embassy has had an ambassador since 2010. chavez himself is in a tight race for re-election. i'm rooting against him. and voters in venezuela will cast their ballots this coming sunday. >>> up next, republicans have been looking for voter fraud. guess what? they've found it, in their own campaign. after making it difficult for democrats to vote, it's the republicans who are to blame for the biggest case of registration fraud in the country. and that's coming up in a minute. >>> you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. aler witr fiona. tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee... affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of t

. hi heidi. >> caller: hi. i love you guys. i have listened to you for about eight years. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i was calling because i wanted to say obama -- everything is turning around right now in the economy. and i want him to be in office for he can take the credit for what he has done. >> stephanie: exactly. i'm surprised that mittens hasn't taken credit for the drop in the unemployment rate as well. >> yeah. >> stephanie: do you have it? >> yeah. >> stephanie: a lot of people like big bird you know?

and barack obama has not had one for four years, and it was obvious he wasn't used to it. his body language was horrible. the fact he dropped his head, and he looked like a whipped dog to me. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> but they can adjust this. they can fix it and it's like i said their strategy was, don't lose what we got. and it never works in politics don't lose what we have already got never works. if the other guy is coming at you, and you are just on the defense. it's obvious you are just trying to hang on to what you got. >> stephanie: yeah, the president is pulling so far ahead in so many polls, and mitt romney has had such a disastrous two months do you think the president felt like he didn't have to fact check him again? >> who knows. the whole point is they were on defense and you can't go there. i would have tried to have buried him last night, and tried to end it you know, right there. make the rest of the debates completely inconsequence shall and just take him down, but they chose not to do that. it was their strategy. >> stephanie: now, mud the last debate is for
